In the first half of 2020, the Far Eastern Main Directorate of the Bank of Russia identified 50 organizations that were illegally operating in the financial market. Last year, at the same time, there were 66 such organizations. At the same time, several financial pyramids were discovered in the Far Eastern Federal District: two in Yakutia and one each in the Khabarovsk and Primorsky regions.

According to the press service of the Far Eastern Main Directorate of the Bank of Russia, monitoring was carried out in the Primorsky, Kamchatka and Khabarovsk Territories, in the Jewish Autonomy, in Chukotka, in Yakutia, the Amur, Sakhalin and Magadan Regions. Of the total number of illegal immigrants in the financial market, 46 organizations turned out to be black creditors.

Most of these dealers were identified in Primorye - 16, ten more organizations were found in the Khabarovsk Territory, nine in Yakutia, five each in the Amur Region and Sakhalin, and one in the Magadan Region. According to and. about. Vasily Kotlevsky, head of the department for countering illegal activities of the department, in one case the black creditor worked as a microcredit organization and had several branches, including those outside the Far East. At the same time, he continued to work even after his license was revoked.

As Vasily Kotlevsky notes, during the pandemic, most of the scammers switched to the Internet, and companies that attract customers in the traditional way have adapted to this. So, one of the financial pyramids switched to work in social networks, offering gadgets at half price, while the other offered to invest in electronic money.

At the same time, not a single illegal insurance broker was identified in 2020. During the same period last year, 17 such companies were reported.
